WARNING: Another rambling WSF rant laced with profanity. You should read the folks in the sidebar. Much better informed and much better writers.
Leading up to the Presidential election, I wasn’t a Trump fan. I was an, “Anybody but Shillary” fan.
What has changed? I think President Trump is doing a great job. What a refreshing change to have someone ‘real’ leading the country instead of a poll tested, focus group approved, puppet catering to big donors and/or the donor’s lackeys. He has done more in 100 days than the Lightbringer did in eight years (except to tear down the country).
Is he bold, rude, crude, brash and often outlandish? Yes, and I’m glad for that. What you see is what you get.
In this regard I’m not alone.
A straight report from the Chicago Tribune?
Nervous about him having the nuclear keys? Not me, but the rest of the world is. That is a good thing. They should fear us. Much like when Reagan was in office.
The Fourth Estate? Two descriptions. First, Larry Lambert’s “the corrupt, smug, pugnacious, revolting, elite, lying mainstream media” description.
or BZ’s “American Media Maggots”
sum up much of the Fourth Estate. Were it not for the internet, you would be hard pressed to find any alternative views. Their non stop vicious attacks on President Trump only convinces me he is doing what is best for the country.
As an example of news/opinions you find on the internet you will not see in the MSM.
As one of my sons says about the Fourth Estate, “You can’t Obama my mind”.
The howls coming from the Washington D.C. swamp, and their underhanded maneuvers to undermine the President adds to my conviction he is doing a great job.
He may save our Republic, which is not a ‘democracy’, thankfully, from the downward spiral we have been living with.
The past eight years have put a majority of citizens in a mental state akin to battered spouses who see no way out, IMO. President Trump has awakened the feisty spirit of our nation, long dormant as the (P)regressives have had their way. Now, like abusers called on their shit, they react with anger and denial. Fuck’em.
Being a contrary grumpy old man, the future will bring my criticisms of President Trump. For the moment, I’m a fan. You can be a President Trump supporter and still be all for equal rights and equal opportunities IMO. I do believe that is where he stands.
Being against special rights and special opportunities now days labels you a bigot, homophobe, misogynist, and xenophobe per a small but vocal segment of our population. To them I would advise taking a flying fuck at a rolling donut.
I still remain a Blue Dog Democrat. I loathe the Jeb!/Rowe/Santorium/McCain/Graham Republicans as much as I do the West Coast misandrists Democrats and their soul sisters and eunuchs everywhere.
